    Last day luck

    Been a tough year in PA for turkeys. Lots of heavy rain, fog wind. Quiet birds, and up north in the big woods no acorns left over for feed.
    Haven't heard a gobble since opening week, called in some hens 2 weeks ago and thats it.
    Heavy rain overnite Thursday into Friday 5/31 for the last day didn't have me optimistic. But the fog lifted around 7am. Was at a favorite spot, did some calling. After waiting about 20 minutes tried a yelp on another slate made by my buddy Rick with Gobbler Getter turkey calls, Bird gobbled right behind me to the left. Got the Mossberg 535 up. 5 minutes later a jake and a longbeard came sneaking in. Jake was close, gobbler stepped out 42 yds away and stretched out his neck. 3" Winchester no 4's dropped him on the spot!
    First game takin while wearing my Howard Leight electronic muffs, worked great, heard the birds coming and didn't make my tinnitus worse.
    10" beard, 1" spurs.
